A relaxing read with the inevitable happy ending (but, what's wrong with that?) - ideal for the beach or while relaxing in a deckchair in the garden instead of mowing the lawn! A plethora of recipes at the end for the enthusiastic baker is a bonus.

3.0 su 5 stelle The cupcake on the front is a good indicator of the easy-read fluff inside (Spoiler alert) 14 giugno 2016

Review starts here:

The whole time I was reading this book, I felt like I should be on a beach somewhere, or lounging around the pool on a cruise ship, or sunning myself on the balcony of a hotel. If reading were a food, ironically, this book would definitely not be bread. It would be something fluffy and indulgent, like a vanilla cupcake with a cream center and piled high with icing. And sprinkles. Not nourishing, but tasty and easy to digest. The kind of thing you want now and then, when you’re on vacation and not starving.

What made this book a bit different than just another vanilla cupcake was the location. Since the people of Mount Polbearne were basically at the mercy of the tides and stormy weather, it created a “man vs nature” conflict that isn’t always in these kinds of books. This led to some interesting situations – Tarnie’s death being the most vivid, but also the causeway bridge conflict and the way it affected Polly’s ability to get a job outside of Mount Polbearne, forcing her to use her baking skills.

It was, overall, a cute story. Polly was a very apt name for this girl since she had a Pollyanna-ish take on life and in her dealings with all the other people. The characters were interesting enough and the unfolding conversations revealed bits and pieces of people’s lives.

The biggest problem I have with books like this though is that hard as I try not to, I just can’t NOT suspend my disbelief. I don’t know how many hours are in a day in Mount Polbearne, but the amount of things Polly got baked and done by 2 in the afternoon was unreal. Then she would trot off to Huckle’s cottage and visit there, then trot back – all before the tides came in…?

And there is always the inevitable filthy rich person, suddenly available to just give the protagonist exactly what is needed …in this case, the expensive oven which allowed Polly to make the bread that brought the village back to life, attracted the snobbish vacation home buyers, fed the fishermen, etc. I think I would have liked it more if she had figured out a different way to make her bread special – rather than having Rueben fix it for her by buying her a stove after meeting her one time. I also thought Mrs. Manse’s vendetta was a bit of a stretch.

I thought it was interesting that the two men Polly and Kerensa fell in love with were Americans. British men just weren’t interesting or crazy enough? =)

And I thought too that the reasons for Polly and Huckle not getting together much sooner were weak – just a good old fashioned air-clearing conversation would have saved them a lot of angst; and in all other aspects, these two were fairly straight forward people. (Well, except for Huckle’s reticence about his past, which turned out to be basically nothing more than a sad break up. I was expecting more from that mystery.)

And in a small town, seriously, NO ONE, not even Mrs. Manse who did not like Polly, ever told Polly that Tarnie was married when they saw them hanging out together? And no one told his wife afterward, about Polly and him? It just seemed a little too convenient that he died --so that issue was put to rest in a neat and tidy way.

But the author did do a good job of describing things – the different breads, the path to Huckle’s cottage, the parties at Rueben’s house, the Star Wars wedding, the way Polly cozied up the apartment – so if the storyline was formulaic and the people seemed to have no lives til Polly came along to solve all their worries and woes, at least the descriptions and the surroundings added a visual element to what I was reading (and trying not to be too cynical about.)

I liked the book quite a bit although obvs Jenny Colgan has a formula she likes to follow in most of her books and it gets a bit predictable. I bought the book to read at home and the audiobook to listen to in the car. I don't mean to be rude but I really hated the narrator on the recording. She made everyone sound like they were at least 60 years old (Polly included), and all the men (and Mrs. Manse) sounded like they had smoked 3 packs and drank a bottle of whiskey every day of their 60+ years. Not very enjoyable. The book itself was a pleasure to read plus there are recipes at the back which are fun.

What a delightful story! Polly and Chris' business has gone bankrupt. Polly has moved to Mt. Pol where she takes the time to sit a while before she moves on with her life. Using baking bread from scratch to calm her nerves, she secretly begins baking bread for the townspeople. Adjusting to the wrath of her landlady, she comes up with a plan to bake bread and sell it in the bakery below where she lives while the landlady does cakes and pasties at the other bakery she owns. It benefits them both. Polly moves on and meets the townspeople, falls in love, and makes plans to stay.

I enjoyed this story. The characters are fun. I laughed. I cried. I felt bad for Polly at times because sometimes she does nothing right. She is so human but strong. I loved her best friend Kerensa who is always urging her to date and move back to Plymouth until she meets some of the people there. The landlady and the fishermen round out the townspeople as does Huckle, the beekeeper. He knows what Polly is going through. He has to learn the hard way that running away does not change the situation nor make him happy. Polly and Huckle could have communicated better and quit thinking they know what the other is thinking and jumping to conclusions.

The story was so good. I fell in love with it. Just a good read that I fell in love with.

Polly’s life is in a tumble: a bad relationship where she capitulated to everything her ex wanted has left her homeless, jobless and near penniless. Moving away from the city and her upwardly mobile more successful friends to regain her bearings is a wrenching, but logical choice. Down the Cornwall coast is a small island, isolated by tides but offering the refuge and quiet that Polly can afford.

A fews days of sukling, a massive storm that brought her someone else to focus on in the form of a puffling she would name Neil, and a community that is surviving on hard work, determination and stubbornness, she’s at loose ends. But, refuge comes in the form of kneading and tending to a loaf of bread.

Soon Polly’s life is a mix of moments with Neil, struggling with the island’s bakery owner (and her landlady) and becoming a part of the town in ways she never expected. Most striking for me is the growth that Polly finds as she settles in and reintroduces herself to her baking, and the increase in her self-confidence as she realizes that her life, while not an easy one, is her own. With a dash of romance, one horribly ill-fated the other a bit more honest feeling, the story never lacks for moments to remember.

Polbearne is based on the actual island of St. Michael’s Mount, the people and their connection to and controlled by the sea brings water and weather to life in a character of its own. Colgan highlights the transience of life and the overwhelming power and danger of a life at sea, using losses old and new to bring perspective and a strange sort of healing to al. Laden with emotion, you’ll be immersed in the story and the town. Until you have to tackle the recipes…

I purchased a copy of the title for my personal library. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
4.0 su 5 stelle A fun and fluffy book that will leave you craving bread and wanting a pet puffin. 30 luglio 2016

Polly's business and relationship go bankrupt, so she moves to an island that is cut off from the mainland every time the tide comes in. She falls into a business doing what she loves and makes friends along the way. Oh, and she rescues a stranded baby puffin and carries him around in a knapsack.

His name is Neil.

If you like JoJo Moyes (without all that messy crying), you would like this. I laughed while reading it...on an airplane. Some of the dialog is that good.

For my star rating, I was torn between a 3 (It was OK) and 4 (I liked it) because most of the book I liked (descriptions of the baking, Polly's spunkiness, the funny dialog, all the characters and ...hello...a PET PUFFIN), but other parts (romance out of nowhere...no credibility, no description of why, just "Oy, I love you." "Oy! Huh, me, too. What say we get together and shag or something?"). But since the romance was only a small part of the book, I will let the 4 rating take precedence.
